In a Vegas State of Mind.........
After my recent trip to Vegas, I had cherries on the brain. I was drawn to Wild Cherry at Bingo Angels. I just had to take a few spins and reminisce on all the fun I had playing those Vegas jackpot slots!
I had a small bankroll of only about 10 bucks so I went for the nickel version of Wild Cherry and bet $0.15 a spin. I noticed that I had to bet 3 coins in order to win the jackpot. 3 Wild Cherry symbols was the biggest pay out for 300 coins. I took my first spin and nothing. I was playing the one line version which made is much harder to hit anything. The wins were far and in between but if only I could hit those wild cherries.
I hit 3 mixed bars for $0.75 and then again. As my balance began to dwindle, it crossed my mind to change games. I watched as 2 wild cherries hit reel 1 then reel 2. Of course the third was nowhere to be found. My spirits were crushed except for the memories of sipping cocktails by the pool at Caesars. I headed off to search for another slot.
I took a chance with $0.25 Fire and Ice. This was the 5 line version so hopefully I would have a bit more luck. Desperate to make something happen I bet the max of 3 coins. I hit a couple of tiny wins but nothing that kept me playing for very long. Without realizing it I was down to $0.16. I couldn’t take another spin and I didn’t bother going back to Wild Cherry.
I had a few nice wins in Vegas but apparently what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I was so impatient to start playing bingo today that I was looking for it even before my breakfast and while I was eating my cereals I was already logged into my Wintigo account. I was very surprised when I realized that I had €22 on my account but I decided to add another €28 so that I could start off with a solid €50. Since there were a lot of slots available I decided to make a little test of luck between slots and bingo. I chose two bingo games – “Mayan Bingo” and “Bingo Bonanza”, and two video slots – “Thunderstruck II” and “Hellboy”.
I first played “Mayan Bingo” and I needed some time to realize what the point of the game was; with 4 cards I had to match with given patterns and it was far more difficult than it seemed at the beginning. Perhaps I didn’t do bingo justice with this game especially comparing to what “Thunderstruck II” produced for me. After only a few minutes of playing, I triggered 10 Free Spins where all wins are multiplied 5 times. During the Free Spins I retriggered them winning something almost on every spin. I couldn’t believe my eyes, but I won €182.55 amounting to €205.35. After a while I started playing “Hellboy” and with some good combinations I kept my balance between €190 and €200.
It was bingo’s turn again and I played “Bingo Bonanza”. Even though I lost some money it was a good experience. The goal was to match 2 balls to multiply a bet; My bet was €10 and I matched 5x, 2x and 1x multiplier on several occasions which kept me in the game for quite a while. I lost around €40 and with €152.10 on my account I decided to stop, go out and soak up the sun.
I love bingo but this test showed exactly my experience during the last few months; I just couldn’t win playing bingo games. I hope this is going to change but I know I’m going to keep playing.

Eating – sleeping – bingoing – that’s been my daily routine these days. I don’t know but I know for sure that I dream about shouting Bingo. So no wonder I chose to play at Eat Sleep Bingo, which I wanted to check out this site for some time now. The good thing is that “90 Bingo Hall” is open 24h but I also I had a chance to win in other two rooms since “80 Bingo Hall” and”75 Bingo Hall” were open. The ticket prices were rather acceptable; £0.10, £0.05 and £0.15
I first entered “90 Bingo Hall” where for every ticket bought, players get 2 for free. Even though it was quite interesting chatting with others, I kept an eye on the game. I played three games there but since nothing important happened I decided to change the room. I then entered “80 Bingo Hall” where for every ticket bought, I got one for free. I thought to myself if that was going to be enough to win something. After a few games I was proved wrong; I just couldn’t win anything.
I gave it one last try in”75 Bingo Hall” and I played four games and on two occasions I needed just one more number – 63 and 11; but the final result is still the same. I chatted with some players and many of them were equally unlucky.
It really seems that I have a streak of bad luck on Bingo. However, I’m sure that the things will change for better and I’m going to keep on looking for a bingo site that will bring me luck.

One of my favorite bingo sites to play at is XBingo. They’ve got the X Factor and I hoped that today, I did too.
I logged in after several attempts to remember my user name and password. I can never keep track of that because I belong to tons of sites. Once I took a look at the rooms, I purchased the maximum of 48 cards for a 90 ball game. One line was worth 7.26. I love the look of the bingo rooms at XBingo. The purple is so easy on the eyes and the avatars are really cool.
Several calls came out and I needed 81 to take the line prize but just as I got to one, someone swooped in and took it. It was okay, I still had a chance to win the double line or full house. We went on to two lines for 10.89. I started to get a little excited when I got to 2tg then once again down to one number. That darn 81 again!
18.14 was the full house prize. I wasn’t doing too badly and I even got to one number but I heard XBingo called way too soon. I was on the edge of a win throughout the entire game. At least I wasn’t in suspense for long. It was a quick game. So quick, that I almost felt like I was playing speed bingo.
Today, there was no sign of the X Factor hanging around me.

I was going through the mental list of bingo sites that I belong to and I realized that it has been a while since I played at one unique site. Bingo Cams is probably missing me and I should get back for a game or two. I don’t even care if I win when I play there. I know that’s crazy but the experience is so much fun.
I logged in and went straight to the bingo but not before I checked out some of the live win moments. These players know how to get a laugh from the crowd. I bought a few tickets for a game that had a decent prize. I love watching the chat mods and some of the live wins. That’s what sets this site apart from others; it’s the unique webcam functionality. I couldn’t win to save my life. Annoyed, I stayed around for one more game with my last bit of money.
I only bought 8 cards with my 40 pence but if it was meant for me to win I would. My game began and I was one number from the line win pretty quickly. Just as I began to wait for it someone took the prize. I was down to 2tg for the two line prize of £4.87 but the same winner took that as well. Two calls later the house was won and not by me.
What was I thinking when I said I didn’t care if I won? I’ll be back to Bingo Cams eventually for my revenge!

Didn’t we all have that dream of winning big? Many don’t have to dream any longer but I still have to. With its catchy name and very colorful and interesting site Dream Bingo is sure to attract players. I decided to give it a try and check out their games. Only two rooms were open – “Day Dreamer” and “Maple Meadow” while “Sunset Strip” was going to start in half an hour. Another two rooms “Velvet Vault” and “Cash Castle” were to be open in 8 and 7 hours respectively. One thing that I didn’t like was that I chose prices and prizes to be in Euro but everything was calculated in British pounds and dollars but my balance, which was in Euro. It probably wasn’t a big deal but I didn’t like that.
Having €20 on my account I decided to play; the first room I entered was called “Day Dreamer”; I bought 24 tickets twice but I wasn’t even close to winning anything but I didn’t want to give up so easily and I changed the room. In “Maple Meadow” the prices were €0.30 per ticket but the same story repeated; I was far from any success whatsoever. Since the tickets in “Day Dreamer” room were cheaper I came back there to play. But it was quite unbelievable; at best, I came down to three or two numbers to shout Bingo.
It certainly was a dream crasher. I guess it was just one of those days when nothing is going your way. Maybe it’s time for Bingo and I to start seeing other people.

I had to go back to one of my favorite sites “Rogers Bingo” to spend more quality time there. This time I chose to play 90-Ball Blitz Bingo first and it looked like it’s going to be a successful evening. I liked the tempo since everything was going fast and I quite enjoyed it. The tickets were cheap so for every game I bought all 40 tickets.
In the first game I was so close to winning, but I missed just one number on two tickets, 13 and 28; in the second game I wasn’t even close to winning anything. Finally, in the third game I covered one line and got $5.16 which was far more that I have won in any game recently. I was very excided and I wanted to play bingo again. I played there a few more games but since I had no more luck I left the room.
Then I entered 90-Ball Bingo room but the game has already started so I bought 40 tickets, at the price of $0.30 for one, and I sat back and relaxed; but the game was intense. I had five tickets waiting to be the winning one for covering one line; I needed one of these five numbers: 79, 89, 29, 3, and 34. After that, I wasn’t even close to cover two lines and for the next prize, to cover all, I was also unlucky; even tough I had two tickets on which I needed only one number to shout Bingo – it was number 3.
It was a nice evening after I have finally won these $5. I also tried some slots, too; but since it was a long evening I decided to play them another time.

I have grown to love the Fabulous Bingo site. The games are great and I’m hooked on the Guilty Pleasures slot game. I have too many guilty pleasures to mention but this has definitely been added to the list.
I went straight to Guilty Pleasures and started spinning at £1. Three bonus symbols triggers the Bubble Popper Bonus. I mean c’mon! A champagne bonus is my kind of thing! There is also the Bubble Line at the bottom of the screen. This works pretty simply but it can be tough to get. You’ll notice that some of the symbols have a bubble next to them. These fill the Bubble Line and your wins are multiplied by the Bubble Line Multiplier. The multiplier is equal to the number of coins you are betting. When you bet all 20 lines the multiplier is increased to 22x.
This slot game has a very “Sex and the City” feel. Every woman will find at least one tempting item as they spin the reels. Whether you love lipstick, champagne, cats, chocolate, shoes or shopping, you’ll find it here.
My first few spins were pretty good. I won just over £11 on the first spin and £22 shortly after but then things started to go south. Finally, I hit £13 with the boxes of chocolates. A bonus would be fabulous but I was so not lucky on this occasion. After a while, every spin was a dead one. I stopped before things got worse.
This just wasn’t the day to indulge. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Players are eligible for a free $10 from Cyber Bingo when they sign up via LatestBingoBonuses.com. It’s been awhile since I’ve played there and I couldn’t wait to get back and see what I have been missing.
I joined the Spring Room for a game of 75 ball bingo. The pattern was clover and as the game was getting underway I couldn’t help but notice the music. It was catchy yet gave me the giggles. I had 12 cards at 25 cents each and the prize was worth $40.35. I was playing against 42 other players which were pretty good odds to me.
I thought the flower covering each number was a nice touch. I seriously wanted to back my bags and move into this room. You could see the daisies blowing in the wind behind the bingo cards. I was so busy admiring the graphics and audio in the room that I didn’t realize that I was down to 3tg. The music began to speed up and as soon as I looked up I knew why. Within seconds another player took the prize.
I was enjoying myself so much and I had enough for a few more games. During my final game the pattern was the coffee mug. We were playing for a $500 coverall. I purchased 15 cards this time around. AS the game went on and on, I began to think that if I could make one small change, I would speed up the calls a bit. It’s just a tad too slow but even so, the Spring Room is the place to be!
Even my best card wasn’t so great. The music really began to speed up because I was down to 2tg on 2 separate cards. Oh then down to 1tg but by that time the prize had dropped down to $50. We were beyond the number of calls required to win the $500. I was getting butterflies waiting to see if my number would come up. Another player bingo’d and all my butterflies flew away.
All I have to say is use the bonus, play in the Spring Room and enjoy!

For the first time in a long time I didn’t have anything to do so I could concentrate only on bingo. I decided to pay a visit to a really nice Cyber Bingo. After pre-ordering the tickets for bingo this Sunday – in Bingo 90 room and Diamond Bingo, I quickly check the other open rooms that had a lot of players and everything looked like rush hour traffic. There were two rooms where it was possible to play for free in Bingo Freeroll and Freebie Room but I chose “Classic Bingo” room; a ticket price was $0.25 and I bought 10 tickets. I didn’t win so I bought another 20 tickets and having 4 tickets with one to go and 8 with two to go, I was very close to win $42.15. It was disappointing not to win; I can’t remember when the last time I called “Bingo” was.
After playing a few games in “Spring Room” and “Pack and Line” room I had only $2.75 left on my account. Then I decided to enter “Freebie Room” just to try my luck and win for a change so I could buy more tickets in other rooms. I felt like I triggered Free Spins in a video slot but it tuned out that I couldn’t win there either; I wasn’t even close, on a few occasions I needed two more numbers. Since it was for free I kept trying and eventually I won; I won the smallest possible amount $0.13 because I had to share it another player.
It was late and was very sleepy and the last thing I thought before bed was that maybe I should try with some positive thinking before playing bingo games.

Playing Bingo and being comfy are two things that certainly go together so Comfy Bingo was the site I had to check out. Another thing that I would like to do is to visit London and bingo rooms named Big Ben, London Hall, Buckingham Palace and City Hall certainly took me there. I was eager to play but all games have already started.
When the time came I entered “Buckingham Palace” room. There were a lot of players so I didn’t make any calculations or strategies, I just bought the maximum number of tickets; in this case that was 200 – I bought 144 and got 56 for free. I thought that I could cover at list one line but it wasn’t meant to be. As a consolation I won £0.53 by being 1tg winner. It was a great thing that I got 10 free tickets for the next game but I didn’t win anything again.
I hesitated to continue but I eventually decided to try “City Hall” room. The ticket price was £0.02 and I bought 100 tickets and it wasn’t so disastrous. I shared the win with two other players and I won £2.39. I bought maximum 150 cards then, hoping that something good can happen, but I was 1tg winner and I had 8 cards with only one more number to go. I bought again 150 cards and again I was 1 tg winner; 2 cards with just one number missing.
I had to stop there because I didn’t want to spend everything right away and it definitely wasn’t my day. At first I wanted to check their slots but I changed my mind leaving that adventure for some other time.

Unlocking the Secret Code……..
It sounds so easy doesn’t it, just come up with four little numbers and you’re a winner! So I decided to do a bit of homework to see exactly what the odds were to pick four digits in the exact order when there are ten numbers in play. The result wasn’t as bad as say getting struck by lightning with a 10,000 to 1 chance of hitting the perfect combination.
I have been on a Deal or Steal kick at 123 Bingo and part of that reason is they are the only Parlay bingo site to offer this game. I like slots that offer not one but two bonus games and Deal or Steal does just that.
My funds were really low but I was ready to go for the gusto and bet .40 a spin on the 20 play line slot. Yes I know it is not exactly a high roller bet lol, but it is a step up from .20 per spin when you’re about to go bust any minute.
Luck was on my side and I triggered the three bonus symbols which launched me to a new screen. The game opens up to a keypad where there are four numbers displayed that I have to work with. Come to think about it, that may lower the original odds because I have the four digits in play.
In this bonus round I had to put in precise order 2976 and enter it on the keypad. If I get them all right on the first try it is worth 4,800 credits. I have a total of five tries in all with the cash prize dropping each time.
One of the nice features about this bonus game is any numbers I do get in the correct order will stay in place reducing the rest of the numbers I have to correctly put in order. With 5 tries in all it is a pretty good chance that players will win something.
I didn’t win the first time around but I did have 2 numbers in the correct spot, the 6 and 7 highlighted in yellow. That meant the 2 and 9 were in the wrong places and needed to switch them for an obvious win of 400 credits.
Playing on a shoestring had its benefits to win that bonus game right when I needed it. Now if I could only pick all four numbers for the Lottery I would be whistling Dixie!

One of my favorite things to watch on TV when I was a kid was ballroom dancing. I loved the music, fancy moves and the fashion. The dance numbers would have me sitting in front of the TV in a trance. I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to those competitions. It’s been years since I’ve seen them broadcasted. In honor of the ballroom dances I loved so much I played the Ballroom Stars slot game at Jackpotjoy.
I set my bet to £1. My first spin landed me 5 dancing couple symbols for £16. A few spins later I hit it again. Three Ballroom Stars symbols would trigger the bonus. I had a very good feeling about this slot. I won 10x my bet with five “A” symbols.
I got the bonus symbols and was awarded 10 free spins. This was very unique though. There are three different couple symbols. Each winning combination involving one of the couples increases their multiplier which begins at 2x. I ended up winning £14 and I was up about £30 now. A couple more good hits and a nice bonus would be perfect.
Well unfortunately no bonus and no big payouts came my way. I went through my winnings but refused to give up any more than that.
I’ll never be a ballroom dancer but at least I can live the dream at Jackpoyjoy.

The Live Bingo Network has some trustworthy brands when it comes to bingo sites. One of those is Ready Set Bingo. It had been a while since I played there so I logged in to see it I had any money waiting for me.
Armed with bingo bucks, I headed for the 90 ball room. Prizes were looking good in Big Ben. I bought 40 cards for the next game as there was a game already in progress. I purchased 40 tickets at 5 pence each and received 16 free. I didn’t have to wait long before my game began. I was looking forward to an exciting game. I love the feeling of being on edge and some of my recent games have lacked the thrill factor.
I counted down the final 10 seconds and the game began. I must admit that I had pretty good cards for the line prize of just over £19. The first three numbers straight out got me down to 2tg but then I stayed there. I had several cards with 2tg and it wouldn’t budge.
The two line prize came and went and it was on to the house. By this time I was pretty confident that I wasn’t going to be lucky in this game. I ended with one card with 2tg. It was pretty bad but I stayed for one more game.
Once again I bought 40 cards and got 16 free. I was doing very badly and I noticed how slowly the numbers were being called. It was very slow for a 90 ball bingo game. At the end I was down to no less than 3tg.
I will be back to take on the Big Ben room but as for today, I was ready set broke.

It was a sunny morning and more importantly it was a great weekend; that day was made for playing Bingo. I chose GinaBingo since it has all rooms open 24 hours and a decent number of players all the time. GinaBingo has many casino games but I really felt like playing Bingo so I just needed to concentrate on €20 on my account.
It didn’t start off well; I went from room to room but I couldn’t win anything. I opened Club90, Club 75 and Bingo80 rooms. In each room I would have bought the maximum number of tickets, which was 48, unfortunately with no bonus tickets; every time I needed one number for Bingo.
At the moment I entered Bingo 30 room I was down to only €8, but I knew that my time would come. I bought another 48 tickets and I finally won €18.51 covering two lines and then with other small wins I got to €22.78. At first, I wanted to stop there but I couldn’t - I kept playing and losing. Eventually I came down to €0.89. Of course, I decided to go to Fun75 room where ticket prices were €0.01; I bought 89 tickets and got 16 for free but I lost everything again.
Playing to the last penny is exciting but sometimes it would be good to stop before losing every single cent and cash out more often. As the time passed by the amount of bad luck took a toll on me; taking a stroll on a sunny day was just what I needed.

Magic is in the air............
Everyone loves a good magic trick. Whether you’re a child or grown there’s a flash of excitement in the eyes of anyone in the presence of a magician. Even though your mind tells you that there’s a logical explanation for all his tricks you still get lost in the magic. This time the magician was Bingo Angels and I was ready to be mystified.
I had luck playing bingo and I knew that some new slots were recently added to the Bingo Angels site. I skipped out on the bingo and flew over to the slots. I don’t have the chance to play Betsoft software games much so I could feel the urge to get spinning. I chose to play True Illusions and almost immediately I got 5 free spins. I settled in my chair and watched to see what the magician had in store for me. Well, he reached into his bag of tricks and pulled out….are you ready? Nothing. I won nothing during that bonus.
Once again the free spins triggered and I think this time the magician was generous with just over $1. All of a sudden this animation of a woman stepping inside of a box started to play. Three stacked wilds had landed on the center reel and locked in place. They can remain there for up to 7 spins and I didn’t win much there either.
I wasn’t doing well but to be honest I think I was so darn excited just to be playing something different. I probably should have changed games but I kept thinking something would happen. I was warming it up and if I left now I might miss out on a beautiful bonus.
The excitement in my eyes turned to tears because this True Illusions magician tricked me out of my balance. I will be back for another performance very soon.

Anything Monopoly themed grabs my attention. I scrolled through the instant games at 888 Play and there it was. Monopoly Riches was flagged as new. I had to give it a try.
The game loads and it’s a replica of the traditional game board. Choose your piece and choose your bet. I stayed safe with £1. I rolled the die and moved 3 spaces to Community Chest. A card was revealed that advanced me to the Electric Company. Next thing I know 3 light bulbs appear with switches attached. I had to select a switch and hope that it would turn on the light to win. I chose the switch on the right and the bulb popped on winning me £2.
I then rolled a 1 and landed on Rome for a pound. Any time you visit jail you get another roll of the die. I like the instant games compared to scratch cards because there is more of a sense of entertainment. They last a bit longer and require more involvement from the player.
Nearly 30 minutes went by and I was still moving around the Monopoly board and by balance was still intact. I had to start thinking about cooking dinner so I took my last roll.
I landed on Go and won 10x my bet. What a way to end the afternoon. Free Parking would’ve been an even better close to the session but we can’t have it all.

I was spreading a word about an exciting world of bingo so I had a few friends over to show them what it is all about. I chose BingoCastle but unfortunately I couldn’t show off my luck. Supreme room was empty and Majesty room had a decent number of players.
Everything seemed to be fine, there were people chatting so the first impressions were great and we were ready for the next step; purchasing the tickets. The ticket price was £0.10; I bought all 24 tickets and got 10 for free; I missed one number for one line, two lines and coverall. It was a bit frustrating. Unfortunately, my friends didn’t have the beginner’s luck; on my suggestion they bought 24 tickets with 10 free twice, but still nothing. I felt bad for them because the first time I played bingo I won a bit over $50.
BingoCastle has very interesting slots so we decided we should try some of them. The first one was “Horoscope” and with a £1.25 bet and winning almost nothing our balance went from £30 down to £12.35 easily. Then we played “Alien Attack” and that was the first success of the evening. My friend was clicking the spin button when the Free Sins were triggered. During the Free Spins, Bonus round was retriggered and our balance went from £15.45 up to £23.
Encouraged, we bought another 24 tickets plus 10 for free, but nothing happened. We decided to prepare a bingo night soon with serous strategy and plans; who knows, maybe we are going to be lucky then.

It’s a difficult balance between winning the higher prizes and playing in rooms with a high number of players. If you want to win bigger prizes you almost always have to take a chance in a room filled with players. There were definitely some big prizes going on at Paddy Power Bingo.
Of all the bingo games about to commence, the prize in the Gold room was £350 and the highest. There were quite a few players in there but I had to take a chance. I didn’t do horribly but I couldn’t really get close enough to a win either. After losing, the ticket price in the Gold Room went from 10p to 5p so I bought the max 72 and stayed for a second game. I was on edge throughout the entire game because the prize total prize was just as good and my cards were decent.
Even though I had 72 cards I was up against 659 other players who had probably bought the same amount. The house prize was worth£229.66. That could pay a bill or two for sure. After the line and full house went to other players I lost the wind in my sails. The best I could do was 3 cards with 3tg.
I decided that I had enough of trying to win against all these players so I looked at the all the games in the lineup once again. Bargain Basement only had 13 players so naturally I thought I would have a good chance of winning. I bought my tickets and settled in with about 1 minute to go before game time. I happened to glance at the number of players and it had climbed to 118. There was no waiting and no excitement to speak of.
I kept in mind that it was just one of those days. I got to thinking that there probably isn’t a strategy when it comes to bingo. When it’s your time to win, you will.
